The EAD-GAP Program is an equipment and assistive devices program, for British Columbians' who are Deaf, Deafened Deafblind or Hard of Hearing.
In 2008, the Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, with a one-time grant from the Ministry of Employment and Income Assistance (MEIA), is piloting an assistive devices program for the residents of British Columbia. We have successfully completed the application process for those who applied in 2008. We still have funds left, but it is now very limited.
We re-opened the program in April 2010 for the following BC Residents:
- Citizens who are Deafblind
- Citizens who are Deaf, Deafened, Deafblind or Hard of Hearing and are living outside of the Lower Mainland such as Vancouver Island, Sunshine Coast, Cariboo, Okanagan, Kootenays, Stikine, Skeena-Queen Charlotte, Peace River and other Eastern, Central and Nothern BC regions.
- Require the use of an assistive device to meet a functional goal, and;
- Be able to identify a functional goal you would like to acheive
If you are interested in participating in the program, please contact Shaon Miller or Ken Loehr at the information listed above.
